Girls Camp inspires girls to be Change makers.

Action Aid Ghana with its partners last week, organized an inspiring one week Girls Camp. A team of energetic and enthusiastic young facilitators supported the Inspirator Michael Ndiweni to equip the Girls with knowledge on leadership qualities and skills they can use to effectively organize themselves and challenge all the vices that affect them. Thanks to the Action Aid Ghana Global Platform for anchoring and providing motivated young facilitators to support this inspiring camp.
The Girls Camp was themed “ Celebrating Girl Empowerment for Leadership” 160 girls converged at Tamale Senior Girls High School populary known as “Pagaana” simpled translated to Girls in Dagnani indigenous language.
The camp focused on building girls resilience to overcome challenges they face in the communities for example forced child marriages, teenage pregnancy. It also discussed effects of these challenges to the development of the Girl Child. It inspired them to be change makers within their communities and defy cultural barriers that continue to oppress and alienate them.
Prominent women role models were invited to give motivational speeches to the Girls so as to believe in themselves and take up leadership roles within communities.
Ghana Health Service provided an icing on the cake by providing health screening to the girls.11892294_510965575736304_2377433053672449637_o
